I believe that anyone with some years of achievement in the creative arts industry has a responsibility to foster the aspirations of a new generation of creatives. And since the internet has changed how we communicate, this intern will be virtual. We might never meet in person.
I’ve been considering setting this up for some time. The fees debacle in higher education and the recent focus on what constitutes higher education has tipped me over the edge! If, as a student, you are required to invest heavily in your learning, then consider a virtual internship as an alternative (or an addition) to higher education.
I cannot offer a qualification; I will not attempt to deliver formal lessons; I will use your work and mine to help you develop your own learning and build a career. I don’t claim to be an expert, but a practitioner.
I’ve drafted some specifications; these may be refined after feedback.
Is this you?
String player (violin, viola, cello or double bass)
Completed some arrangement and compositions for strings
Logic user (preferred)
Sibelius user (preferred)
Competent with both midi and notation
Home recording set-up and audio recording experience (preferred)
Race, age, gender, geographical location are not relevant.
